[Sticky] Coaching Sessions For Future Medical Students In Italy  

Ari Horesh
Noble Member Community Founder Medical Student

Hello everyone! In recent months, hundreds of people have asked me to have private sessions to get information and plan a curriculum for the IMAT exam. I founded this community intending to provide a non-profit service to as many people as possible, but unfortunately, my time is limited and I am not able to reach as many people as I would like! To allow the site to continue to exist, I decided to recruit several amazing people with a worldview similar to mine, who help me continue to operate the website. Like many similar sites, the most practical way to continue helping people is to offer the option of contributing to the site and to get some cool perks in return! Therefore, I decided to start offering private coaching sessions for donors who want to get targeted guidance to incorporate effective study techniques into your IMAT test preparation. In these sessions, we will identify your weaknesses and work on developing habits and routines to develop long-term personalized effective studying methods. As many of you know, since I started this project, I have analyzed in-depth past IMAT questions,  have identified patterns and common "traps", and the effective methods of navigating them.  This is not intended to teach the material of the IMAT but to advise you on preparing as effectively and efficiently as possible. If you are looking for a private teacher for the study material itself, please, contact us. 

Please choose with whom you are interested in scheduling the sessions:

2nd Year Medical Student - University of Pavia. 

Ciao! Mi chiamo Saya. A metà della quinta liceo maturo l’improvvisa convinzione di voler fare la dottoressa, rinunciando a una carriera da classicista. Ho preparato il test in poco più di due mesi, in un’intensa estate di lacrime e sudore. Sono convinta di essere riuscita a decifrare i segreti del test di medicina: come studiare solo quello che serve nel poco tempo a disposizione, e soprattutto come preparare il test di medicina contemporaneamente in italiano e in inglese. Con 63 punti nell’IMAT e 50.4 nel test in italiano, decido felicemente di immatricolarmi a Medicina in Inglese di Pavia. Ora non mi rimane che la voglia di aiutare chi, dopo di me, affronta il test per raggiungere i suoi sogni.

Shalev Benita


3rd Year Medical Student - University of Pavia. 

Hey everyone! I׳m Shalev, a third-year medical student in Pavia. I've spent the last three years researching and experimenting with study techniques to maximize efficiency, results, and long term retention. I was able to get 50 points on the IMAT in 2018 and learned a lot about how to do well on the exam and implement the strategies I learned before and during med school to do excel in it. If you're looking for one on one coaching and advice about how to reach your potential in the IMAT, then look no further.

I had a really great session with Ari. He helped me identify my main weaknesses and specified what I need to focus on going forward. He helped me evaluate where I'm at and really gave me the confidence boost I needed. I really appreciate what he does for students looking to study in Italy. I'm looking forward to my next lesson with him.
